Skelkela7lhkálha (In-SHUCK-ch Elders group) are involved in our community. They gather once a month in Deroche as well as up in the territory, actively bringing together families, friends and youth.
By creating a society with charitable status for Skelkela7lhkálha elders, the elders’ representatives can fundraise and accept donations to help the community at large. Their goal is to ensure our history is passed onto the next generation by encouraging youth to be involved and become informed citizens, as well as provide guidance for community spiritual events.
40th Annual Elders Gathering is being held in Williams Lake, BC July 11, 12, 13, 14, 2016. Find more details on the 2016 BC Elders Gathering here.
